Kavooa Golf to host Rick Sessinghaus at PGA Merchandise Show

Golf Digest Top 50 Instructor will provide demonstration and best in use practices with new Kavooa Pro training aid

Los Angeles, CAKavooa Golf, creator of the new and versatile swing training aid, Kavooa Pro, will be exhibiting at the golf industry’s largest business event, the 71st annual PGA Merchandise Show at Orlando, Florida’s Orange County Convention Center, Jan. 23 – 26. 

An appearance by Golf Digest Top 50 instructor Rick Sessinghaus on Wednesday January 24, from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm will highlight Kavooa Golf’s week of activities and attractions at Booth No. 1793. Kavooa Pro inventor Dylan Horowitz, the collegiate golfer who created the swing training aid during the pandemic, will also be available during the week for meetings.

In addition, Kavooa Pro, which normally sells for $129.99, will also be offering a PGA Show special rate of $99.95 when you stop by their booth during the show.

Kavooa Pro, the first swing training aid from Kavooa Golf, quickly helps golfers improve and develop consistent contact with the ball. The tripod-based product can be adjusted via a patented telescoping device with rods (golf alignment sticks) to stabilize a golfer’s head and hips during the swing. That, in turn, helps solidify pure contact for consistent ball striking.

Dylan Horowitz took inspiration from his longtime instructor, PGA teaching pro Dr. Rick Sessinghaus in developing the feedback-based device. “We used video back in 2020 to show me how my head was moving forward during the swing and Rick mentioned there was no training aid to fix that movement – aside from either having someone hold up a stick to your head while swinging and staying behind it or placing a beanbag on top of your head. So, we began working on what’s now Kavooa Pro.”

It was during Covid of 2020 when Horowitz, who was isolated at home, had time to figure out a way to work on his game and stay positive.

“I came up with the original model by taping a pool noodle to the top of a punching bag that was around my height. I made the necessary adjustments and would use it while hitting into my backyard net. When the courses opened back up in June of 2020, I then used a tripod, duct tape, a shoelace, and adjustable Star Wars light sabers that I drilled holes through using a burnt screwdriver in my freshman dorm room. After that version we switched to PVC pipe to begin creating the first prototypes.”


Over the next couple of years, Horowitz, with the assistance of his father, Andy Horowitz, who brought significant experience as an entrepreneur building companies and selling them to Fortune 500 corporations, worked on the business side and the design aspect of the product to bring it to life.

About Kavooa Golf

Founded by Andy and Dylan Horowitz, father/son duo entrepreneurs who span four generations, Kavooa Golf is a venture from their mutual love of golf. For Dylan Horowitz, a 20-year-old collegiate golfer and captain of the Chapman University golf team, the pandemic brought on many challenges including isolation, excess of free time, and many questions as to what might happen to his college golf opportunity. He spent his time in isolation working on his golf swing and fixing one of his major swing flaws and, in the process, invented the company’s first swing training aid – Kavooa Pro. With the assistance of his father, who brought significant experience as an entrepreneur building companies and selling them to Fortune 500 corporations, worked on the business side and the design aspect of the product to bring it to life. The tripod-based training aid, patented and developed with PGA coaches, applies to a variety of core golfing drills that is versatile and used by coaches and students anywhere.
